Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Dvd Drive will not eject properly

My console works perfectly besides the fact that when I push the eject button it will not eject unless I push on the front of the bezel and then it will release. I have seen this before but never figured it out, seems the magnatism that locks the disk in place is too strong or something and needs a little push to loosen each time. Any solutions?

What do you do to get cd out


If it doesn't eject out automatically when pressing the eject button, take a paper clip and straighten it, or you can use a long needle, now look at the portion just beside/below/above the eject button, you'll see a tiny hole, push in the needle or the straightened paper clip, press the eject while you push in the pin, you'll need to push a little harder, it'll automatically eject out.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My pc drive wont open Help!!!


Is the cd/dvd? Look carefully on the front, you'll see a tiny hole just below the Tray (usually beside or above the eject button), take a straightened paper clip or a long needle and push inside the hole while you press the eject button, push it inside until it ejects out.

Good luck.

PowerMac G5 doesn't eject


Your DVD wont show on the desktop unless a DVD is inserted. Which means that the DVD is either upside down, or simply isn't recognized by the reader. There should be an eject button on your keyboard. Hold that for 3 to 5 seconds and see if it ejects. If not, look for a tiny hole in the front of your case and insert a paper clip and push in until the DVD ejects. Some Macs have no hole and require a shop to extract the DVD for you. Another trick is to start up the PC while holding down the C key during bootup, which will make the PC try to boot off of the DVD. At which point the DVD should eject as the system asks for a proper boot cd.

Cd/dvd drive doesn't work. Won't open with eject button, How can I determine if it is a driver or hardware problem?


Look at the drive there should be a tiny pin hole near the eject button, insert a needle (safety pin, sewing, etc.) into the pin hole and push this opens the drive.
You can also try opening my computer and right clicking the DVD drive and select eject. After you do this close the drive and try the button again it may just be stuck if it still won't eject you can try and pop off the front of the drive (very simple it locks back on easily) and find the place where the button connects to the drive to eject and push it, If it still won't open it is your hardware.

Power down the laptop and restart it. As soon as it restarts press the open button on the dvd drive and it will open. You may have to try a few times but it will work.

Phillips DVD+RW burner on Dell computer won't eject


You will find a small hole on the face of the drive. This is the manual eject mechanism. Insert any wire-like object (a properly sized size paper clip works real well) and push until the disk ejects.

Note: Many times the mechanism is recessed quite far behind the face plate, so make sure the object you use is long enough (again, paper clip).

System wont load or eject any discs...


Remove the disc drive from the console. Remove the cover very carefull. Take the top part off (remove the 5 screws) and open the disc drive like a book.
Carefull remove the guide mechanism (the front part -1 screw).
The clicking noise is caused by the fact that the left side mechanism that raises and loweres the deck when the disk is inserted or ejected is stuck. Carefull push back the piece of plastic with teeth located on the left side of the deck (as you are looking at the disk drive the oposite side with the lens driving motor) until it clears complete the plastic round gear that drives that part.
mount back the guide mechanism, and the top part.
Attached the ribbon cables to the unit , power the console and keep the eject button pushed for about 10-15 seconds.
That will reset all the gears and stuff.
Worked for me when I experienced that issue.

DVD DRIVE WORKS, BUT CD DRIVE DEAD


Try using the manual eject that is as small as a pinhole just below or beside the CD drive. Once you find out that you can manually eject you may be able to insert a cleaning cd to clean the device.

If that doesn't work check device manager to see if it has the proper driver or if it's recognized that it's installed in the system.

Couldn't eject DVD from the slot-in drive


From memory its a bugger of a mission ,
Easier to take to a Service Technican unless you are able to do this type of repair,
It will require a lot of paiteince and skill to strip down and reassemble this just to get to the disk.

Give it to the PROS only if you want it to work again,

Sorry but thats the truth,

Hope this helps ,Please rate me thanks
